Need Suggestion Urgently
Hi,

My Mother is suffering from Kidney Disease and I would like to know anybody's professional suggestion. Below are some details:

Age: 61
BUN: 99.6
Creatinine: 6.7
Hemoglobine: 9.5

She is undergoing Dialysis twice a week and it's been around one month already. What are the possibilities of getting better or recovery. How can one recover from such stage without going under Kidney Transplant. Doctors has suggested not to go under Transplant.

Please suggest., Your suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Ajay

Hi  Ajay,

Most  likely your mom  will not  recover  her  kidney  function  unless  she  suffered  from  acute  renal  failure (in  a short  time/overnight sort of speak) due  to meds.
When  a patient  sufferes  from  Chronic  kidney  damage  (happens  slowly  through  the  yrs),  there's  no  going  back.
Dialysis  is  a treatment  option  which  will help your mom  stay  alive  and  relatively  well.

May  I  ask  why  doctors  are  advising  against  kidney  transplant?? is  it  due  to  another  illness?    61  is  very  young  and  with  a  transplant  she  can  live  very  well, provided  there's  no  other  illness involved.

For now,  tell her how  important  it  is  to  no  skip  any  dialysis  treatments.   To    follow  drs  order  as  far  as  meds,  diet and   fluid  restrictions  are   concern  and  she  will  do  great.

Take  care!

I know it's scary to have your Mom on dialysis.  When they placed my Mom on, I think we all thought it was the kiss of death.  I've learned alot since then.  People can live for years on dialysis and have fairly normal lives.  We also thought my Mom's kidneys would "come back" after meds to keep her alive caused her to go on dialysis, but they haven't.  My Mom is alot older than your Mom (she's 72) and not a candidate for transplant because of her general health as well as her age, but I would check into it if it is an option.
